Even as Mumbai ready for the final rites of Lata Mangeshkar at Shivaji Park at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Karan Johar spoke for the performing arts neighborhood when he mentioned: “Today, heaven truly gained the voice of an angel.”
The producer-director-TV host mentioned: “I grew up listening to Lata ji`s songs and as I mourn her loss as we speak — I do know with absolute confidence that unki `awaaz hello pehchan` hai and she or he has left an indelible mark on our Indian tradition for a lot of generations to come back.
“And today the words of my favourite song resonate very deeply in my heart as I sing — `lag jaa gale, ki phir yeh haseen raat ho naa ho … shaayad phir iss janam mein mulakaat ho naa ho`. Thank you for making an entire nation swoon with your pure voice, we will miss you. Rest in peace, serenity and power.”
The immortal music that KJo quoted was sung by Lataji within the 1964 film, `Woh Kaun Thi`, whose music was composed by Madan Mohan, with whom the Nightingale had an extended and fruitful affiliation.
